Where to source t444e new spare parts

Looking to put together some spare parts to carry on my bus since itíll be cheaper than a tow... specifically

- [ ] CPS cam position sensor
- [ ] IPR Injection pressure Regulator
- [ ] ICP Injection Control Pressure
- [ ] UVC injector and glow plug harness
- [ ] Glow plug relay

Any suggestions on a good source for these parts? Preferably online.

Getting parts at Napa has been problematic because they search everything by vin and it usually doesnít work well. Plus I wanna make sure I get the international part not the ford one...

Thanks

Much of this stuff is probably available on Amazon. I did a quick search and found glow plug relay and CPS fairly easily and quickly.


Search by part numbers of you have them.

I am subscribing to this thread because I would also like to know if other T444E owners recommend other parts to carry that are known to cause problems. I was even thinking of soliciting a list in a new thread of everything skoolie owners pack around....

Thanks!!! I really appreciate your post!

I read that some people were concerned about using non-oem parts. Any opinions on if these ones are good and reliable? Or experiences?

ive heard all kinds of mixed reviews on OEM vs non OEM parts.. partly I think its that many people who dont have access to scan tools just start replacing things if the engine doesnt start or throws a code.. and when a certain part doesnt clear said code they instantly say "this part sucks".. the 5 parts to carry have all been covered well and are the source of most 444E issues.. the only thing id add to it would be a fuel filter, as bad fuel can makje any diesel clog its filter and run like crap...



the other big thing is make sure your batteries are healthy... these engines like to spin fast when starting.. if they dont, then the computer will refuse to send any fuel..

If you have a 97-03 T444E the UVC harness is different:

UVC - https://www.amazon.com/CBT-Autoparts...-1-spons&psc=1

Also rockauto.com is a good source for these products as well, albeit without prime shipping but they have a large selection. The key is to search under Ford F250 or Excursion with same year as your bus. Some things can be found by looking under Internation; Year; Model ( 3800 in most cases ), then whatever section of parts you are looking for.

Another thing that hasn't been mentioned is to make sure your belt and tensioner/idler pulleys are in good shape. If you throw that belt you are a stuck duck. Different buses have different length belts due to different accessories, so if there is a part# visible on your belt still then I advice sourcing a spare. You can also take the belt off and go to autozone or whatever parts store and they can measure it and see if they have anything that would match. I found all of the pulleys I needed for my bus on amazon, but rockauto has them as well.

I figure the pulleys will start making noise etc if they are started to go. Bare minimum I could change the belt and limp off to somewhere I could fix the bus.
